Versailles Restaurant and Café

3555 Sw 8th St/sr-90/tamiami Trl/us-41
Miami, FL, 33135 US
This Little Havana restauant is the town square of the Cuban exile community. Opened by Felipe Valls, Sr. in 1971, its open late and offers a wide variety of Cuban dishes. There is a seperate cafe with a windowa which faces SW 8th street. Packed at all hours, its a great place to gossip and to see friends and community celebrities. If anything that occurs of relavance to the Cuban exile community the place gets absolutely jammed with people. At the time of addition of this marker the place has been one of the few spots where demonstrators have been gathering for four days and nights after Fidel Castro ceded power to his brother before he went in for emergency surgery for intestinal bleeding. I have friend who was teargassed in front the day after Elian Gonzales was taken into custody. No matter what your politics, this is often an exciting place to be!

Marko's Miami - Little Havana, Exiles on Mainstreet

Come and explore Miami's Little Havana Neighborhood as seen throught the eyes of photographer Michael Strader Marko. The area is in the heart of Miami, Florida. It's where I grew up and I never lose my fascination. Like an ancient city accustomed to invasion, Miami has absorbed the influences of successive waves of immigrants. Most of these are relatively recent. Cubans fleeing Castro's government, then other Latin Americans from all over South and central America. Each has leant his influence to the city, it's politics, commmerce and cuisine. Arguably the Cubans have had the largest effect of any of these groups. Indeed Miami is in many ways a Cuban town, as the name given the area first occupied by the Cubanos implies: Little Havana. But remember, it's about the photos!
